MCT February Release Sneak Peek #2



Are you ready for more sneak peeks today?  Well, you are in for a treat, because we have another adorable set, and this one is for all of you cat lovers out there!  You Had Me at Meow! is a darling stamp and die set, and I used it for two projects today.  First, I made this birthday tag using Tag Dies and Tag Die Layers.  I stamped one of the kitty stamps on some watercolor paper, tried my best at watercoloring her, and then cut her out using the coordinating die. I die cut the balloons using dies from the Best Bots Forever stamp/die set. Then I used my sewing machine to make the balloon strings.  The sweet little sentiment is just one of many that are part of this new set.


Now for my second project, I used the kitty to dress up the Valentine treat boxes that I made for the girls in my class.  I started by making a pillow box with the Cricut Tags Bags Boxes & More 2 cartridge.  Then I used a banner from Build a Banner Kit to have a spot to write my to/from.  Of course, I had to add the adorable heart from last month's Heart 2 Heart Love Frame Dies - so cute!


And then there is the adorable kitty!  Since I had to make 10 of these, I didn't want to do much coloring.  I just stamped her on kraft cardstock and colored the inside of her ears and nose with a Copic marker and the eyes with a gelly roll pen.  Easy!  Don't you just love the glasses and collar?  They are just some of the accessories that come with the kitties!  Adorable!
